Classes Begin Next Week!
Posted by Jamin Rathbun on 07/25/16.

This week is your last chance to register before classes begin next week. Of course, we add new students year-round, but many class and teacher rosters fill up fast. If you're trying to juggle all of the pieces (aren't we all?), now is the time to get your dance, art, and music classes up for the fall. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get the class and lesson times you need.

An updated class schedule is always available at trinityartscenter.com/registration. We're still scrambling to catch up and keep up with email and voicemail, but we're fulfilling those requests on a first-come first-served basis, and will get back with you quickly!

One way or another... We're excited to jump into a new school year. We love what we do! Thanks for letting us do it!

We have two more early registration open houses on Monday, July 25th and Friday, July 29th, from 4:00-7:00. Stop by and see us. As is our strict policy at Trinity Arts Center... Hugs are always free! Come and get one!



Music Is Fun! (Early Childhood Music Classes)
Posted by Jamin Rathbun on 07/25/16.

Next week, we're launching an early childhood music class we're calling Music Is Fun! This class is designed for students between four and eight (with some flexibility), and will be offered Wednesday morning at 10:00, Wednesday afternoon at 5:45, and Thursday afternoon at 4:00.

This program is being developed by Courtney Hollenbeck, an experienced early childhood educator, music instructor, and former Colts cheerleader from Indianapolis. From Courtney's syllabus: "Play is the work of children. In the Music is Fun class, your child will learn essential musical skills through the wonder of play; learning to understand and enjoy music while expanding their confidence, creativity, and friendships." I guarantee your kids will love her! Let us know if you'd like us to hold a spot!

Tuition is the same as for all dance classes -- $145 per quarter, $270 per semester, or $500 per year + a $40 registration fee. We'd love to have you!

Tanya, Brooke, and I will be at the Arts Center from 4:00-7:00 on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week (July 13-15) and on Monday and Friday the next two weeks (July 18, 22, 25, and 29) to help answer questions, and get class and lesson times locked down for the 2016-17 school year. Classes begin on August 1st. Only the $40 registration fee is due to hold a spot. If you're not registered yet, it might be time!

Of course, you can always call or email as well. Our response times are still a bit slow this time of year, but we're getting closer to caught up every day. Hopefully we'll see you soon!



The 2016-17 Class/Lesson Schedule Is Online!
Posted by Jamin Rathbun on 06/05/16.

Our early registration dates have passed, but earlier is still better re: getting registered for the 2016-17 school year. For dance or art, check the online schedule and let us know where we can hold a spot. For private music lessons, call or email so we can find a day, time, and teacher that works best. Around 70% of the available class and lesson times are already reserved. The sooner you check this off your list, the more options you'll have!

For more information, Download the 2016-2017 Registration Form, call, or email. As always, check the online calendar for start dates, summer camps, workshops, and everything else. Call or email if you have any questions. Thanks!

Note: We do not require a new registration form for families who have previously been registered. We just need to know what classes/lessons you'd like to participate in this year, and how you'd like to pay. From there, we will email you an invoice so you can confirm and pay online.

Summer Art Workshops
Join me (I'll literally be taking this workshop) for our first art series created for adults (or very serious teens). Our Life Drawing workshop will walk us through the tips and techniques necessary to translate what our eyes see to what our hands can create on paper. For those of us who have undeveloped talent or unfulfilled interest -- this series is a great way to invest in both.

This 16 hour workshop (taught by Christopher Allen Boyd) will progress from gesture drawing techniques to full figure drawing, and will include live models (fully clothed, so it will be appropriate for older teens). The class will meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 from May 31st through June 23rd. Tuition for this series runs $160. All materials are included. Space is limited. Shoot me an email to hold a spot.

Both weeks of our intensive (June 6-10 and June 13-17) will include an intense 5 1/2 hour daily schedule of ballet, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, contemporary, modern, and theatrical classes, with lots of opportunities to learn new choreography, push yourself, and benefit from the varied personal experience of this amazing group of dancers, teachers, and choreographers. In addition to being talented performers and teachers, these guests are all incredible role models and mentors. You will be inspired and changed.

Classes are available for both intermediate (at least two years of ballet) and advanced (at least three years on pointe) levels. Tuition is $300 per week or $500 for both. The intensive is 100% open to students outside of our studio, although space is limited and housing is not included.
